of the political universe is ohio. president obama and governor romney are locked in a tight race to reach the magic number of 270 votes and ohio could tip the scames one way or the other. that's why the candidates are putting time and effort in the buck eye state . joining me senior political analyst for the washington examiner michael moran. >> good to be with you. >> this election may come down to ohio. what does romney have to do to win the state. >> he has to win over a lot of afluent voters necessary suburbian areas that haven't voted republican in the last couple of presidential election. areas with which republicans used to win but trended democratic over the last 20 years. on the cultural issues and he has to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in other states.
president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign trail. they're operating with very little information. we can't know at this point just how devastating the damage might turn out to be. as a result i think both campaigns are being very cautious about what they do other than paying attention to the storm. >> woodruff: susan, what's your read on how the campaigns are dealing with all this? >> i think there are two things to look at. one is just the logistics, for instance, does this storm affect early voting that's going on now in ohio and north carolina and virginia? but a second thing is the larger atmospherics. what is the effect of having president obama go off the campaign trail back to the white house? the white house just this afternoon released a photo of him meeting in the situation room to get an update on storm damage. it seems to me that has an impact on a race where governor romney has been making some progress in recent days. does this kind of freeze things for where they are now. >> woodruff: that's what i wanted to ask you, susan. does one candidate or another

's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/john

. with president obama and governor romney headed into the final week, we want to track where the race stands with senators from four key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio, who played president romney in the debate represent and 18 electoral votes are in play en a state obama won in '08, by 4.6 points and now leads 2.3 points in the latest real clear politics average of recent polls and republican ron johnson of wisconsin, 10 electoral votes at stake and obama won by almost 14 points, last time, and, is now leading by 2.3. and democrat mark warner of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all
governor that obama is going to raise questions about romney next week because it is very hard if not impossible for him to get 50 percent. he has to discourage the undecided from voting for romney. that is a win for the president if they stay home. he will need tv effort and plus trying to persuade the undecided not to support romney. >> and governor, may i just add the states are significant for another reason. we look through the 2008 pris'm. in the states that we mentioned. obama carried wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire and ohio, certainly . but two short years later. a republican one state wide seat and in the case of wisconsin twov them and in the case of new hampshire. and so super seeding intervening factor is the 2010 election and model the turn out with a hybrid of 2008 and 10 where the issues are the same as in 2010; you are on to something you copele that with the president is looking less look a president and more like a politician . he doesn't want to talk about benghazi but binders and bimper. that is making the undecided vote to break for the challenger is true
president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the election, sir? president obama said i'm not worried about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. the election will take care of itself next week. right now the number one priority is make sure we're saving lives. my question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campaigning, picking up chec checks. be fair, maybe he learned something from a month-and-a-half ago. >
. president obama vowing states will get all of the storm assistance they need. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need we will be there. we are going to cut through red tape and not going to get bogged down. >> they will they had to orlando before it gets to the white house. >> they will assist with relief efforts they are urging supporters to keep people at risk in their prayers. >> i know people are nervous about the storm that hits the coast our thoughts and prayers are with people who find themselves in harm's way. >> mitt romney will visit ohio, iowa and wisconsin all states that could sway the election. >> turn over the evidence. they are increasing calls for the obama administration they are outraged they are staying quiet. listen to this. >> very good at touting and giving all of the details like when they got bin laden. but now we know there were tapes recordings inside the consulate during this fight and they have gotten -- they came when the fbi got in and quote top secret. >> republicans are politicizing the issue. >> is this tearrism 101. a n
president obama right now is up by two and a half points. we are giving that to governor romney. see how this scenario plays out. the president would have to take the state of michigan where he is up by four points. let's give those 15 points to him. wisconsin where he is up by two. this is one of the most -- obviously one of the most important states. ohio where the president is up by two points in a pivotal, obviously as we have been talking about and will be talking about for 11 days, ohio critical. we will give that to the president. pennsylvania. the president is up five points. adding another 20 points to his electoral coun. new hampshire, those four points we are going to give. up by just one point. if thatere to happen, as you can see, 269-269, we have a time. so what do we do in the event that this occurs? by the way, this is entirely possible. let's go old school. back to the blackboard. and if no candidate receives a majority it triggers what is called a contingent, and there are, i assure you. it is seldom in the house of representatives, and in that case which is thepresiden
're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a mess because of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout b. what role government direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would
president obama and governor romney fire storming seven critical states across the country in the hunt for 270 electoral votes. is argument -- >> unemployment is falling. manufacturing is coming back. >> the passion. this is an election about big things. about big choices. >> and the ground game. the critical effort to deliver key voting groups to the polls. this morning, we hear about it all from key figures on the ground. all important ohio. can romney win the white house without it? we'll ask the state republican governor, john casic. wisconsin governor scott walker and colorado's democratic governor, john. analysis on what will tip the scales in this tight presidential race. from the round table, from msnbc, rachel maddow, new york times columnist david brooks, washington post columnist, former ceo of hewlett packard, carly. our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good morning on this sunday. as if it wasn't enough to have this tight race, we have inically mat weather bearing down on the e
obama and governor romney. someone who actually made the case for shutting down fema. in passing the responsibility on to the states and some people say maybe we're learning a lesson. how do you deal with something like that? >> absolutely every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> governor romney says it would be better to privatize fema. that's jarring and so was his reason. >> we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more than we're taking in. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral. for us to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids knowing full well that we'll be dead and gone before it occurs makes no sense at all. >> with eight days to go in this election, that is the choice in this election. do we want a president that believes government can be there when we need it most or someone who thinks it's immoral to sp
. >>> switching gears to politics now, president obama and governor romney are canceling some of their campaign events because of the hurricane. the president is in florida this morning but canceled stops in three other states. >> romney is heading away from the east coast today to campaign in ohio, iowa and wisconsin. >>> hurricane sandy is also causing some trouble with early voting. the lines stretched around some polling places saturday as people tried to beat the storm and go vote. >> and we continue to track hurricane sandy. coming up next, we'll get the latest from tucker barnes who is tracking it for us. we'll be right back. anncr: every president inherits challenges. few have faced so many. four years later... our enemies have been brought to justice. our heroes are coming home. assembly lines are humming again. there are still challenges to meet. children to educate. a middle class to rebuild. but the last thing we should do is turn back nonow. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. a west virginia casino launching the biggest ad barrage ever. don't be misled
, governor cue ono. great things of governor christi saying nice things about president obama. what's with the good will? is it necessity or does it bring together people? >> you have to hope that times like this when you're thrust into the reality of the real work of government, which is about protecting people, saving people, keeping people safe, that that really makes everybody work together, and what you really also have to hope is that that experience will create a little muscle memory so the next time we have an issue that maybe isn't a natural disaster, we'll all remember how we worked so well together and how much better that is for the overall greater good. >> it doesn't always work this way. i mean, you sound very optimistic about what you have watched today, over seen it in the city with the other council members, but i think of john lindsay who basically was laughed out of office after one of these snowstorms, i think of jane bern in chicago, mayor nagin in new orleans. they blew it. >> you don't want ever want this to happen on your watch if you're a mayor or elected of
, a big impact. president obama and challenger, mitt romney, cancelled events. governor romney was going to head to new hampshire. the president to ohio tomorrow. president obama back in washington, actually touring fema today, making sure that federal preparations are in place and the federal resources are ready to go. but both men will be back on the trail and there's only a week left. >> ama: live from ocean city, maryland, thank you for that report. >>> we will stay on top of the latest storm developments. our superstorm sandy coverage continues on abc-7 at 6:00, and 11:00 p.m. and get updates at any time on abc7.com. >> in other news this evening, at least 1 people must find a new place to live for the time being after a fire drove them from their homes in san jose. the fire broke out around 7:30 this morning in a condominium complex on creek side drive. the flames moved quickly after the fire started in a building that houses several garages. >> the structure did catch on fire. the fire went from the garage into the attic space of the townhome, and also spread laterally, damaging m
.c. public schools also will be closed. >>> president obama, local governors and other leaders are all asking all of us to stay home and stay safe through the rest of this storm. if you don't have what you need at home, chances are the stores don't have it either. >> pat collins has been out in montgomery county all day. he's up on i-270 in rockville. pat? >> reporter: jim, i've been to gas stations that don't have gas. i've been to radio shacks that don't have transistor radios. and flashlights, forget about flashlights. if you don't have it by now, this is no time to go out and get it. stay home. live without it. wait this storm out. now, we're on 270 near montrose road. the rain here is relentless. we get sudden gusts of win every now and again. the traffic is light. but getting through the roads, likely to become dangerous. let's hear now from some 270 road warriors. >> hard driving. win wind. >> reporter: hard to keep the control? >> yep. it's raining a lot. but it's not disrupting traffic at all. >> i can still see where i'm going at leas i'm glad i have traction control on my car. >> i
on this campaign already. president obama and governor romney have both canceled more than a dozen events in key swing states over the next several days. maryland and the nation's capital heavily democratic areas canceled early voting for today. a decision on tomorrow will be made depending on how bad this storm gets. some virginia counties have suspended in-person absentee voting, and the labor department announced the final jobs report before the election could be delayed. the october numbers are scheduled to come out friday. the bigger picture here, in a race this close we know turnout is key for both candidates. if folks don't have power and worried about their home, some worry getting to the pols won't be a top priority. who stands to gain the most from this tough situation? let's go to the table, and look, i've seen a bunch of stuff out today, the political science research which i'm very skeptical of. i would say for an incumbent president you have to do something. there's a lot of risk. there's a lot of potential for making a mistake. on a more simplistic level, i don't think if you're a
getting darker and darker and darker. president obama and governor romney abandoning campaign trails today and tomorrow. here now, steve moore. steve, we broke news earlier this hour that the labor department was going to go ahead with those numbers, with the unemployment number on friday. that was a big deal in the big question that we had earlier. people are not at work so it seems clear they could delay it, but, of course, people would be wondering that is a little too convenient with election on tuesday. the most important survey of all, in terms of the selection, a week from tuesday, is that survey of unemployment that comes out on friday. the president obama gets a good number, it will be a huge lift for him. if we go back to 8% unemployment, which is very possible, then, you know, that really throws the momentum in the last weekend to met robbie. do not forget, remember the 2005 election -- ashley: we are pretty seeing some disruption and certainly the storm is big enough, we have seen the campaign, both campaigns knocking back their schedule, canceling events. who wins? >> that is
it portrayed governor romney, showing president obama in one light and governor romney in another. tell us about the fallout from this. guest: had i been the photo editor of the newspaper, i would not have picked those photographs. i felt those photographs gave a message. if you look at the front page, you got a feeling the newspaper was trying to present a positive image of romney and of a negative image of obama. everybody i've spoken to has given me the same kind of feedback. it was a mistake for the newspaper to do that, a poor choice of gore made that decision. host: how much of the candidates visiting your state,, are the candidates visiting your state? how much attention is iowa getting on the ground? guest: all the attention we can handle. both candidates are here routinely several times a week, both of them, along with surrogates and along with their. running their there's not a single day that goes by in the state where we don't have a visit from a candidate, running mate, or significance forget. both candidates have made iowa a focal point. there are about nine states that are s
of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first of all, we have the gallup daily tracking poll today that shows governor romney up by four points, 50-46. you have the rasmussen daily tracking poll that has governor romney up 50-47. the real clear politics average though is closer, that has 47.7 for governor and 46.8 for president obama, so, erin, real clear politics, you guys have this as a virtual dead heat? >> we do. in the national polls right now, it looks like mitt romney is ahead. he's poised to have a victory in the popular vote, if the election were held today. but if you look at the a lot of the state polls, it looks like president obama is headed for a vi
daily tracking presidential tracking poll shows that governor romney has 49%, president obama 47%. scott rasmussen joins us now by phone. scott, the main question at this point it looks like this romney momentum has stalled? >> well, the race has been pretty stable, you know, governor romney had a good move after his first debate performance, took the lead nationally, made a lot of gains in some swing states and the race hasn't changed too much. it's very close with a slight edge to governor romney nationally and it may all come down to two states, ohio and wisconsin. charles: and speaking of which, those polls, you know, listen, over the weekend. you've got a lot of competition, and some of them i haven't heard of before, but seem to be a zillion and one polls to give the information, how are you feeling about the two key swing states now? >> i think both are too close to call. if i had to guess i think wisconsin is a little better for the republicans and a little better for the democrats. when i ook at the polls that are out there, in ohio, the rate, the numbers range from very from e
can see these campaigns are taking no chances. >> reporter: governor romney will join ryan's bus tour in ohio. president obama canceled events in virginia and colorado. he'll do one last rally in florida today before heading back to washington. on sunday the president met with fema, the federal emergency management agency overseeing the government's plans to help states and cities. >> anything they need, we will be there. we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. >> reporter: in florida the president told campaign workers turnout is the key. >> whoever is able to get their voters out, they're the one whose are going to win florida. >> reporter: that could be tough in states where sandy is headed. maryland already canceled early voting today. virginia, a battleground state could see power outages lasting until election day. >> several months ago we had the largest -- third largest power outage in history but we got everything pretty much back on in seven days. we're not expecting that this time. >> reporter: virginia is already plannin
and president obama more in the spotlight with mitt romney taking a back seat because president obama is in charge of the government. that's just the way it is. >> that is the way it is, but that did not stop at least some campaigning going on for the governor. as i mentioned, you have this eef event with paul ryan and bill clinton in florida. he was supposed to be in florida with the president. let me play what former president clinton had to say. >> i was supposed to be the warm-up man for president obama today, but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> but obviously the show does go on in some capacity, but talk me quickly about the perils for both of them. obviously, the president is the president. this is his responsibility, to have the concern of the american people on the forefront. what does governor romney do or say, other than this point that he's trying to be sense and pull off the campaign trail tomorrow and not today? >> it's no accident that bill clinton was in orlando. that's a key swing area right in the heart of that i-4 corridor. there was a cnn poll out t
that going back to the 2008 cycle, both senator obama at the time and governor romney, spending time with the editorial board. we have talked to the candidates. we have really explore the issues. is our endorsement matter? i think it does. it has been a century at least that we have endorsed a presidential candidate. it is part of our tradition. politics is indeed dna of the des moines register. we take very seriously the first in the nation status as a caucus state. we take seriously the ability to affect candidates that are not on the radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. very informal opportunity to sit down over coffee to talk about what is in front of us. what is the position for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we probably spent a lot of time doing diligence and being thoughtful in all of our conversations, particularly the final one to support governor mitt romney. host: we are talking with the editor of the des moines register. let me ask you about the process. you had a telephone conversation that ran 30 minutes with the president. the white house said it
